Le Manoir de Brendel was the perfect choice for our intimate wedding! My wife and I decided to come all the way from Germany to celebrate our wedding in Franschhoek. Even though we had never been to Le Manoir de Brendel and had to organise everything from abroad, it wasn’t difficult at all, since Charmaine has done a wonderful job responding to every little request we had. It is incredible how much time she invested to make sure everything would turn out just the way we wanted it to be. In the end we had a small and intimate wedding at the best possible venue. Charmaine and her team did everything to fulfil all of our wishes and they made our event unforgettable. We owe her and her staff a very special thanks for all the organisation for our guests and we also thank .. so much for the trust we could put into her in organising the wedding accommodation and celebration. – Sebastian & Patricia

BELAIR

The views are exceptional from this small farm on the slopes of Paarl mountain. This beautiful country estate is within easy reach of Cape Town and central to the innovative wine culture of the Western Cape. Situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands district, on the Suid Agter Paarl road, Belair’s neighbours include several well-known wine estates. With breathtaking views of the Boland mountains, this country estate is surrounded by magnificent scenery, where you can create a function that will long be remembered.

Belair is home to one of the most beautiful country garden wedding venues in the Western Cape. Belair Pavilion is a contemporary glass and steel building with wrap around sliding glass doors. Beautifully positioned in an exquisite garden, it is virtually alive, covered in evergreen Star Jasmine that is in bloom late October / November. A dramatic water feature creates an aisle linking the Pavilion to a quaint 120 seater ivy-covered chapel, all surrounded by magnificent Wisteria covered arches. For larger gatherings, Belair offers a beautiful outdoor ceremony area for up to 250 guests. the Water Pear Tree ceremony area provides wonderful shade in summer months. The area features a striking black and white tiled aisle with the most beautiful rose covered arches.

One of the many great features of this venue is the fairy light lit outdoor patio, adjacent to the main reception area. It features a wonderful fire pit and an intimate outdoor dance floor. The charming Country House on site, offers accommodation for up to 28 guests in 14 individually decorated suites.

A full-scale labyrinth and exquisite reflection pool are only two of the many highlights that makes Belair exceptionally different. The estate is not open to the public, ensuring privacy and exclusivity.

Belair is not only the most beautiful venue, but the staff and team are extremely organised, friendly and helpful and go above and beyond to ensure your wedding dreams come true. We got married at Belair 1.5 weeks ago and loved every moment of the experience and working with Jason and Wil throughout our journey. I highly recommend Belair as a wedding venue!!! (We wish we could do it all over again!) – Jade Simon

Is there accommodation nearby and on the estate?
What is the Plan B in case of cold/rainy weather?

Most venues offer different wedding packages so keep an eye out for them to see what is included. Make sure you understand the fine print and the after hour charges.
